    Norfolk/Portsmouth apartment hunting!

    Advertisements
    Hiya all!

    I'm moving to the Norfolk area, however it makes sense to actually get an apartment closer to Portsmouth right now. Anyone know of any good apartments in the area?

    I looked at houses in all the cities around here... and I wouldn't live in Portsmouth or Norfolk either. But....there are lots of apartments around. If you were coming up earlier, there is a book of nothing but apartments and condos out each month.

    I'd keep away from Portsmouth definately and there are a lot of bad areas in Norfolk. Not that you're looking to live in Newport News.. but NN overall is terrible.

    I live in Chesapeake.

    ok well it all depends on what you like! i lived in portsmouth for about 6-7 years and then i moved to chesapeake and i have lived here for about 4-5 years. all the areas around here have their "good & bad" parts of town! you just have to really look! i think you should be able to look at www.apartmentguide.com or www.apartments.com now if the rent is really low then that is more than likely in a "bad" part of town! but i think that you should come out here and look to see if you like the different areas. give me and idea on the price range and i will see if i can come up with a couple ideas. maybe not just apartments i might be able to see if their are any houses for rent. just let me know if i can be of any help.

    I'd stay away from Pourtsmouth and Norfolk too!! I was terrified when we drove through Pourtsmouth, and Norfolk's convenient to the base, BUT the city has A LOT of bad areas! LOOK around first!
